The player with the ball passes to the next player and follows the direction of the ball using a side step.
The player who receives the ball does the same and so on to the last player who receives the ball and runs around the group to the first cone and restarts the drill.
Pass the ball before running
Side step one way, then the other
Pass off both hands
Pass the ball as they start to move
Change side steps to forward sprint or backwards running, etc.
Increase the passing distance
The players run to the cone and then pass the ball square before running on to the next cone and pass square. When the players reach the end they have to run back through the middle of the cones.
The practice keeps repeating.
Set up the cones as shown.
12 Cones with 2 balls.
Start with 2 players on the centre cone, each with a ball, and facing each other. On GO, the both run backwards to the first cone then side step up the grid to the second cone before running through the slalom cones back to the start where the ball is passed to the next players who only go when each player has received a ball.
